The additional screen will also contain two front cameras, while the rear camera unit for the next smartphone will contain four lenses.
The report added, that the main flexible screen of the phone will be folded inward, like the Samsung Galaxy Fold, noting that the current flexible smartphones Huawei – Mate X and Mate Xs, the screen folds outward and not inward.
